When you think of luxury automotive brands, names like Audi, Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce all come to mind, and when you think of modern-day elite NFL quarterbacks, names like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees all come to mind.

Two of those giants are now coming together, as Aston Martin signed Brady on Friday to a multi-year endorsement deal, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell. It's another notch on Brady's endorsement belt, but it's quite a significant notch to have.

As per the deal, Brady will be featured with his car in an exclusive content series, and help design his take on a 2018 Vanquish S. He'll also be driving the Aston Martin DB11, a car firmly entrenched in "if you have to ask, big man, you can't afford it" territory (link NSFW).

Brady was "honored" to join the Aston Martin team, as per the company's release:

“Aston Martin exemplifies dedication to the craft of car making through a meticulous attention to detail. While 104 years of heritage are reflected in each hand-built car, with product from the DB11 to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, this brand is primed to excel for the next 100 years as well.

 “As a long-time fan and driver I am honored to join the Aston Martin team at this special moment in the company's history.”

Brady's also no stranger to vehicle endorsements, too. In the 2012 season, he endorsed the reboot of the Dodge Dart, and made a cameo in their "How to Change Cars Forever" ad series as the "perfect" celebrity endorser. The difference between the DB11 and the Dart, though, is basically night and day.

As per Spotrac, Brady's earned $196,166,804 in his career. That's enough for about 925 DB11s, which is just incredible.

If he needs help driving it around for any errands or anything, I'd be more than happy to help out!
